Description

Full Length Play

Comedy

Another collage epic by the master of The Ridiculous Theatre, a futuristic tale of war across the universe. Tamberlaine, President of Earth, proceeds from planet to planet, capturing and enslaving Bajazeth and Zabina-King and Queen of Mars-Venus, and Natolia, Queen of Saturn, among others. Cosroe-a Martian prince and twin brother of Zabina-leads the rebel forces against Tamberlaine in Ludlam's mind-bending experimental classic, his theater of "sexual, imperialistic war." Literary, film, and dramatic treasures are ransacked and pillaged for the hilarious dialogue and multiple plots in this unbridled original, humorous tale of unbridaled space queens!
